I’m a little later than usual with this week’s Badger book due to an outbreak of flu-like symptoms this past few days and so a sleep-in was the order of the day this morning. Now I’m up, showered, breakfasted and ready to settle down with my cuppa and this week’s title. I’ve chosen to read The Man From Beyond by John E. Muller who, as you’ll no doubt be aware before I even tell you is the writing trio of R. L. Fanthorpe, John S. Glasby and A. A. Glynn. Let’s have a look at that all important tagline first shall we;
Dare humanity accept the strange teachings of the man from beyond
Hmm… dare we indeed. A great, although sadly uncredited cover on this tome depicting yet another one of Badger’s beloved disembodied heads – this time the noggin in question is bald, green and appears highly perturbed by the bright red rocketship blasting off to his left. I love the range of emotions these heads seem to portray, from the slightly concerned to the seriously vexed – Badger has all bases covered.
Time to spend my lazy Sunday amongst the pages of this title now, tea and tissues to hand. I’ll be back at the same time next week with another selection from my Badger archive so please do join me and as ever, feel free to leave me a comment.
